In Cebu City, Philippines, Sto. Nino Basilica was heavily destroyed by 7.2 earthquake on October 15, 2013. Also affected were the Roman Catholic Churches in Bohol, Philippines.
Unfortunately, some Cebuanos were seen carrying Sto. Nino “idols” in television, as if Sto. Nino “idols” can save them from graver (one who carves) punishments.
The acts shown by Cebuanos are grossly constituting idolatry , which is a spiritual stressor that was previously discussed in this site.
But due to earthquakes in Visayas, Philippines, the publisher deemed it necessary to quote first what particular verses in Habakkuk 2 would apply under the circumstances.
18 What’s the use of an idol? It is only something that a human being has made, and it tells you nothing but lies. What good does it do for its maker to trust it – a god that can’t even talk! 19 You are doomed! You say to a piece of wood, “Wake up!” or to a block of stone, “Get up!” Can an idol reveal anything to you? It may be covered with silver and gold, but there is no life in it. 20The Lord is in his holy Temple; let everyone on earth be silent in his presence. (Habakkuk 2:18-20, TEV).
Habakkuk 2 verses refer to the incoming doom anchored on the combination of “sodomy” and “idolatry“, which were already discussed and noted to have a direct connection to the Roman Catholic Church. Other factors e.g, religious deception, etc. will also be discussed. For the coming event, above verses would specifically apply, its tenor being noted as a challenge to Roman Catholic idols and any idols for that matter, e.g, the “Liberty” idol in New York, the idol in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil which used the name of Christ, other idols, which used the names of Christ, Mother Mary and the saints, including the Holy Cross and Holy Rosary “idols”, which used the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, including the name of Mother Mary.
For information of the readers, the publisher was a Roman Catholic before he eventually decided to get out of the said church due to some significant observations, which are mostly contained in this site. These observations shall be discussed fully in due time, including the further discussions on Sto. Nino and the statues of Jesus and Mary as “idols”.
For the time being and for lack of material time, it is necessary to forewarn the public of the incoming event, which is unprecedented but will not be happening again. Assuming that nothing significant will happen on April 2014, the public is free to conclude that the information is false. Also, if negative, on the other hand, it will free the publisher from believing on his personal spiritual encounter with someOne.
Note: A prior publication from this site entitled “Filipino Term for Forbidden Meat” was probably removed from “Facebook”. With all due respect, the intention of the said article is just to inform, thus, may it not be taken to offend anybody but only to inform.
